Abstract

As health organizations strive to improve operational efficiencies and increase worker productivity, new forms of health information technologies (HITs) are constantly being developed. This article surveys the extant HIT literature and adopts a case analysis approach to identifying emerging health information technologies. The understanding of HIT trend is further enriched through the applications of technology-forecasting techniques, specifically, scenario analysis and U.S. patent searches. The article focuses on five emerging HITs and their impact on the future of U.S. Healthcare Services Delivery.
